Shrimp Quality Index System
ICAR – CIFT has developed a demerit score based Shrimp Quality Index (SQI) System for assessing the quality of fresh shrimp. It considers the five general quality characteristics of Shrimp viz. Appearance of shrimp outer surface, colour, odour etc.
This system would help the consumer to evaluate the quality of fresh shrimp instantly. This system provides the instructions for evaluating the quality/ freshness of shrimp. After evaluating the shrimp in terms of quality characteristics description, the consumer or user has to select appropriate score given in the element score sheet. After complete selection of demerit score, a final Shrimp Quality Index (SQI) would be computed automatically along with the quality description of shrimp.
